On December 13th 2010, New Dorp High School hosted the business plan competition where seven VE firms: Ovea (Tottenville High School), VE Law (New Dorp High School), The Printing Depot (Fort Hamilton), Universal Promotions(Edward R. Murrow), Bon Voyage (Fort Hamilton), Office Universe (Port Richmond) and VEMI (New Dorp High School) competed. The competition took place in New Dorp High School’s auditorium from 1-4 p.m. Each presentation team went up to the stage and presented their Business Plans and answered the questions the judges asked them. Each team did their best in the competition, but in the end, VE Law took 1st (New Dorp High School), The Printing Depot took 2nd (Fort Hamilton) and Universal Promotions took 3rd (Edward R. Murrow). Even though VEMI didn’t place, they are still qualified for the Citywide Business Plan Competition on January 14, 2011 at the Deloitte & Touche CPA firm in Manahattan. By: Jose Haley

The 2010 California Trade Fair turned out to be a great experience. We were proudly represented by our Director of Operations, Nicholas Venier. We went there projected to make $50,000 and ended up making more then double the amount. Our firm ended up making $110,000 by selling our policies. This turned out to be a very huge success for us. Nick Venier The business portion of the California Trade Fair was very important, but it was also a great opportunity to visit a different place. It also was an opportunity to see other schools and see how their VE firms operate. The experience also opened up an opportunity to set up a strategic alliance with one of the other firms in the future. A strategic alliance should be able to increase business for both parties. This proved to be beneficial from a business standpoint as well as a great learning experience.
